Zeelander Yachts was founded in 2002 in the Netherlands by Sietse Koopmans. This entrepreneurial sailor had decided to create a sports cruiser design driven by boating experience alone. The yachts he had in mind would redefine the edge in cutting, using the highest quality materials inside and out.

A Wajer De Kapiteinssloep 720

Wajer from the Frisian town of Sneek in the Netherlands has been building the most beautiful and absolutely top-quality sloeps since 1992.

This captain’s launch is a fiberglass boat with a fabulous wooden interior, 7 meters in length.  The classic lines of the double-hull fiberglass are based on the English launches from the 1920s and universally renowned for their elegance and superior seaworthiness.

Comfortable seats, a very quiet engine, minimal maintenance and a wide range of practical features form the foundation for this design.  Comfort is ensured by perfect ergonomic seats which make long trips a pleasure.  Sound insulation is another top priority and many owners actually find themselves actively enjoying listening to their engine do its work.

The Dutch say “A Kapiteinssloep is not a boat, it is the king’s throne”.  The hull is made of hand-laminated fiberglass, the interior completely in solid teak and mahogany and the stern boasts a huge battered rudder blade.  Wajer’s detailing such as the gilded fittings gives this ship charm.  The Volvo inboard engine has a fresh service and purrs extremely quietly in its feudal engine box.

She’s listed for $61,200 at Kielwasser in Berlin.

The Floatwing

Floatwing is brought to us from Friday, which is a team of naval architects, engineers and industrial designers from the University of Coimbra in Portugal.  They just published first photos of their prefabricated floating house that can be built to order and transported to lakes and waterways anywhere worldwide.

The modular design allows it to be shipped in two containers and assembled on site.  Friday describes themselves as “creating technologically advanced nautical and water related leisure devices and equipment”, with a focus on “modularity, personalized client relationships, energy efficiency and environmental sustainability”.  And we are all in!

The Floatwing is designed to be entirely self-sustainable for up to a week at a time, letting you take up residence at the most beautiful remote spots.  You can specify the amount of equipment integrated in to the house such as a pellet stove that burns compressed wood or biomass, water and waste tanks with 7 day capacity, and a wastewater treatment plant that uses activated sludge.

The house has a fixed width of 6 meters with lengths between 10 and 18 meters.  The layout is customizable whether you want a cosy studio or a fully furnished 3 bedroom home with 2 baths.  She’s powered with a motor partly by solar energy, it can move itself at speeds of three knots.

Alchemy House Boat

Alchemy – A Simply Exquisite Dutch Barge Replica

Dutch barges originally used for carrying cargo in the Netherlands have now been converted for pleasure cruising and residential use.

We found Alchemy in western England.  She’s a newly completed Dutch Barge replica, fitted out beautifully by a professional cabinet maker. The hull was commissioned in 2013 and blacked in May 2017.  Alchemy displays an innovative and unique design including a large collapsable wheel house, assisted by gas struts and a complete retractable roof in the form of a tambour. This is ideal for catching some sun while preparing breakfast on summer mornings as well as creating a stunning slatted effect in its closed position. Other features include sliding doors for space saving solutions and tambour units in the rear cabin.

 

The fine cabinetery seen throughout include a sunburst veneer pattern on the dining table and a beautifully designed curving wall that displays itself in both the bathroom and main living space. These features are balanced beautifully with a mix of soft textiles throughout. The main timbers used are English Walnut and Oak.

From Alchemy’s use of old snooker table slate for her kitchen worktops to old stained glass inlayed in her portholes, she is truly stunning.

 

 

Alchemy is 21 meters long, has two cabins that sleeps six, and is powered by a Vetus 120 hp diesel engine and bow thruster. Additional features include washer/dryer, electric toilet, central heating, a wood burning stove, Victron inverter charger, battery bank, large calorifier that is heated by either the boiler, immersion heater, or from the diesel engine. All the major electric and plumbing solutions were performed by a specialist marine company ‘Loomtech’.

Alchemy is currently moored and being lived in by the current owners at the beautiful and sought after Tewkesbury Marina.  This beauty can be yours for $337K and can be found here.
